English term or phrase: road plate
pipe-bursting system

Prepare the pit by stabilizing the bottom of the pit with a layer of gravel. Further stabilization can be accomplished by placing a ***road plate*** on top of the gravel before setting the machine in place

what's a "road plate"? ...I don't think it has anything to do with a concrete layer...
